    hi! i was wondering how you made the choice to leave your med-surg unit to go to psych. i'm a new grad too on med-surg, but i'm not sure if i want to continue and i also did my practicum in psych. how did you tell your med-surg unit that you're thinking about psych or moving on?
    Hey! I knew I have wanted to do psych since I was in school. I never got a psych position but I was offered a med surg position, I took it because that is all I was offered. My manager knew my goals, I told her in the beginning that psychiatry is my passion but I was willing to try it out. I was UNHAPPY as ever. Once I saw a new grad psychiatry position opened, I applied right away, got the job. I gave my manager a 2 week notice, she understood. I didn't even bother putting it on my resume because I wasn't there too long.
